The tragic number of Covid-19 deaths in every Sheffield neighbourhood since start of pandemic

New data released by the Government shows the number of people who have died in every Sheffield neighbourhood since the coronavirus epidemic began.

Sunday, 3rd May 2020, 2:18 pm

From March 1 to April 17, 761 people died in Sheffield, with 164 of these confirmed to have passed away from covid-19.

But many experts believe the true impact of coronavirus is much higher, with the virus having knock-on effects on the way people use the health service and sometimes people dying having not been diagnosed.

However, the full picture of how many so-called 'excess deaths’ have been caused directly or indirectly by covid-19 will not become clear for some time

The figures show wide variation between different areas of Sheffield, with more deprived areas seeing more coronavirus deaths than better-off districts.

The areas with the most covid-19 deaths include Crabtree and Fir Vale (18), Park Hill and Wybourn (8), Norton and Norton Lees (9) and Woodhouse Mill (9).

In Crabtree and Fir Vale and Park Hill and Wybourn, more than 50 per cent of all deaths were confirmed to have been caused by coronavirus.

Earlier in the epidemic, South Yorkshire Police pleaded with communities in Fir Vale to observe social distancing, with mixed results.

UK wide data, however, shows Sheffield with a lower covid-19 death rate than other major cities.

The worst-hit area of all is London, where around 5,000 have died since the epidemic began.
